I don't think the sentences are underlined correctly.

Anyhow, A is the only answer that works here.....the use of "whose" is incorrectly modifying "realm"

Late, but (A). Realm is an inatimate concept which needs to be expressed with the pronoun "which."

Don't we need a comma before in which?

Technically, the usage of a comma before which depends on whether the noun modifier is ESSENTIAL or NON-ESSENTIAL

* If the noun modifier is essential, ==> NO comma before "which" or "that"
* If the noun modifier is non-essential ==> Have a comma before "which"
* No comma before "that".

Regarding this question, you cannot put a comma before "in which", [not before "which"], because if you put a comma, the relative clause will be a non-essential clause and can be eliminated. However, if the relative clause "in which the floor....." is eliminated ==> the sentence makes no sense.

Hope it helps.
